Having seen a lot of ‘Instagram Best Nine’ posts recently I couldn’t help but join in. I did it last year too so how could I resist seeing the difference.
As I wrote in my previous post My Instagram 2016 I loved the best nine but because it was based on number of likes theses weren’t reflective of my favourite. I thought I would do my own! This is actually harder than it sounds, trying to pick my favourite nine photos from a whole year! Naturally I had to separate them into two categories ‘Family’ and ‘Food’. I have done a lot of baking and cooking this year and I am very proud of some of my creations so I really wanted to pick my Best Nine Food Photos.

I was so proud of this cake! It was a chocolate sensation and I already have something even more chocolaty planned for next easter!
What a Saturday Night treat! These biscuits are some of our favourite and they are so quick and easy to make I can do it in under 20 minutes. (Shhh! Don’t tell Hubby he will want them all the time).
Ok, so I know this is the only non cake picture and maybe I should have included more food, or perhaps I shouldn’t have included any? But I am hungry just looking at this pizza! Good job its on the menu this week!
I can not watch Great British Bake Off without a sweet treat in hand! These macarons were filled with a lime curd surrounded by chocolate ganache… They were AMAZING! Even if i do say so myself.
After posting about the previous macarons I had various suggestions of flavours given to me, the one i found most intriguing was the Gin & Elderflower… So what else could I do? I had to try and make them! I made a Gin Jelly for the middle and an Elderflower Buttercream. Delicious!
Aren’t I a good wifey! Aren’t I! What an amazing cake filled with smarties 😉 This was actually really good fun to make and far easier than I expected. Chocolate cake, chocolate ganache, vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream coated in sprinkles.
These were the start of my ‘festive’ baking. I love how bright they are!
How could I go empty handed when visiting two of our favourite Uncles? Well I couldn’t! I had to gift them some chocolate macarons. I taste tested…. They were up to standard!
Finally, some Christmas baking. These were such good fun to make and design I had to include them. They didn’t make it to the tree!
I am really looking forward to lots more Instagram posts in 2017. I will definitely be doing another Food Roundup next year although it really is hard to keep it to nine!
